Forever Christmas by Robert Tate Miller

Book Description:  This Christmas will change Andrew Farmer’s life forever.
Andrew can’t remember the last time he spent Christmas away from work. The end of the year is crunch time for literary agents. But when your career is your life, your life starts to suffer . . . beginning with your marriage.
When a heart-wrenching accident in a Christmas Eve snowstorm jars this high-powered agent from his obsession with success, a Christmas miracle will give him a second chance at love, life, and gratitude, but only if he can put aside his own ambition and learn to appreciate each moment.
Sometimes it takes a tragedy to change a man’s life—and to teach him to treat every day as if it were his last.

My Thoughts: This is a lovely little hardback book!  Robert Tate Miller is a brand new author to me so I didn't quite know what to expect from this read.  But the title, Forever Christmas, drew me much like a moth is drawn to a flame.
A "different" kind of read in the way that the author pens about a couple on the verge of a break up...a martial disaster . . . when Andrew, the husband, realizes that he wants his marriage to work.  So, he and his wife take off on the spur of the moment for a weekend to their old hometown.  Lots of memories and lots of goodness.
This read reminded me a lot of "It's a Wonderful Life" simply because Andrew realizes the worth of his life.  And he begins to see his wife in a different light.  She is a dazzling creature and she loves him. He loves her.
The title, Forever Christmas, brings to my mind's eye a place where we,humans, can live in a glorious atmosphere full of love and laughter with those we cherish the most...all year long...forever Christmas.  
This may be one of those books that becomes a Christmas classic and maybe, just maybe it will become a movie (wouldn't that be cool?!?!).
